Now is very difficult time for all crypto market. But I can clearly see massive manipulations in this space from whales. I see big OTC offers only from Buyers and all try to find Sellers of BTC. It's a big game and right now I am waiting for the following big projects to redeem themselves in 2019: Bakkt, ETF, Fidelity, Nasdaq, and that is just to name a few.
About ICOs etc. Generally there is an evolution, new era 2.0, and investors consider all ICO, IEO, STO as a serious business projects. Now all scammers are thrown out from the market. Nowadays it is not enough to make a beautiful website and promise to do something in the future. If you want to start with ICO/STO — try to have a ready MVP (better product) at the start of your ICO/STO. Projects that try to raise funds without presenting any visual and interactive interface usually fail. When will be the next big pump, money will flow to the market again and into the projects too.
